I have never had a chance to see the new series Memphis Beat but I love police dramas and I love music so sounds like a show with a lot of potential!
According to their website, “Memphis Beat centers on Dwight Hendricks (Jason Lee), a quirky Memphis police detective with an intimate connection to the city, a passion for blues music and a close relationship with his mother. He is “the keeper of Memphis,” a Southern gentleman who is protective of his fellow citizens, reverential of the city’s history and deeply rooted in its blues music scene.” The series also “co-stars DJ Qualls as Davey Sutton, a uniform cop who considers himself to be Dwight’s protege. Also starring are Celia Weston (Junebug) as Dwight’s effervescent mother; Sam Hennings (Saving Grace) as Charlie White, aka Whitehead, Dwight’s seasoned, hypertensive partner; Leonard Earl Howze (Barbershop) as Reginald Greenback, a fellow detective struggling to make ends meet with two teenage daughters; and Abraham Benrubi (ER) as Sgt. JC Lightfoot, an officer who uses Chickasaw tribal wisdom in his police work.”
I’ve always liked Jason Lee as an actor – he has played many memorable roles in movies I’ve really enjoyed (including Chasing Amy, Vanilla Sky and Stealing Harvard to name just a few). I’d love to see him in Memphis Beat because I think he is a talented actor!
I also noticed that one of the co-stars of the series is DJ Qualls and, as soon as I saw his photo, I recognized him straight away! I’ve seen him in guest roles on numerous series (including Big Bang Theory, CSI, Numbers and Criminal Minds) and I think he is a great actor so that makes this series even more appealing to me!
Memphis Beat airs on Tuesdays at 10 PM (9 Central). The season finale is on Tuesday so if you enjoy the show, be sure to watch!
